In the midst of social distancing and sheltering in place, applying to college feels more complicated than ever. Extracurriculars, college visits, and testing have all been drastically transformed, and your college search process has had to change, too. You're probably asking yourself, "What should I be doing now?" We've gathered a group of college admissions experts to help you figure out your next steps, including:

  • How to launch a college search and "demonstrate interest" from afar
  • How to identify and pursue your passions while following social distancing guidelines
  • How to use this time for self-reflection and turn those ideas into essays when the time comes
  • How to set up a standardized testing schedule
